|Very bright white circular object between in Heber Arizona
At around 7:15 on September 2nd my family and I witnessed a white brightly illuminated circular object while looking directly above and a little South. We were staying at a camp site just outside Heber, AZ. We noticed this object while on a hayride through the forest area. There were several other witnesses at the camp, however I am not familiar with who they are.
The craft was clearly visible for over 25 minutes and stationary. It was the size of your thumb nail at a full arms length. It was as bright as a full moon, and too big and much too bright to have been a star. There was what looked like a bright ring with a darker center.
We observed this object climb in height until it was about the size of a star; it had by then changed to an amber color.
While watching this object I talked to a man who worked at the camp and had him look up at this object. He said he had never seen anything like it in the area in his 15 years of working at the camp.
There was no strange movements or fast accelerations, it was just stationary until it climbed to a distance that we could no longer make it out.
After the hayride stopped I and used my Sony Digital camera to take a couple of still images and video tape the object for about a minute or so. You can make the object out on this video but the Sony camera only has a X3 zoom.
